Show Respect for your fellow Members – Lazy Bunkers

After some 20 years sitting on golf club committees, I am used to members having a good moan about the committees.

Occasionally, however, I feel I have the right to have a good moan about our members.

Sunday mornings are reserved for our Men Members and this Sunday past was no exception. I tee off around 9.30 meaning around 15 three balls have teed off before me. My second shot went into the greenside bunker on the 1st. When I arrived the bunker was nicely raked apart from 2 sets of footprints left by 2 different members and I assume condoned by their playing partners as acceptable etiquette. There was no excuse; the rake was there, the bunker was in good condition, they couldn’t have been tired by the first hole … they just have no respect for the players following.

Please do not be shy. If your playing partners do not automatically rake the bunker – ask them to do it! If they refuse, rake it for them and report them to a committee member.

PS … I made my 4 following my bunker shot so this is not about sour grapes … it’s all about respect.

Web Site Changes

If you use Google Chrome as your web browser, you may have noticed over the last few months that Google warns you that our site is not secure. For the technically minded, I have had to install an SSL certificate and migrate our website to HTTPS. I have also had to migrate our website to a more modern server provided by our hosts.

The change to our members is that when you open the site you need to use an https address at the start. If you open the site via an app or shortcut you may have to open it manually and save the new address. The easiest way to do this is to click the link below.

At the moment you can use either the HTTP or the HTTPS method but it only a matter of time before the old version disappears. When you make an HTTP connection the website connection is not secure. That means that anyone can eavesdrop on the connection and steal or manipulate any data passed back-and-forth. HTTPS is secure. When you make a connection with a website the data being sent is encrypted. it is faster and performs better than HTTP. click below to launch as https ……

Annual Inters versus Rabbits Challenge Match

The third annual Inter v’s Rabbits challenge match took place at Parklands recently and the 14 man Inter team emerged victorious. Top scorer was Andy Bolton who won a 4ball voucher for Hunley Hall.

The President is pictured presenting the trophy to the winning Inter team captain Iwan Owen with Tommy Watson offering his heartiest of congratulations.

Both teams now have a break until the 2019 season begins in April, but any Parklands male members, over age 18, with a handicap of 8 or above, who wishes to play next season should contact the Inter (Handicap 8-15) captain Iwan Owen, or Tommy Watson for the Rabbits team (Handicap 16+)

Past Captains Annual Match and Dinner 2018

It was the Past Captains Annual Match and Dinner at Parklands on Sunday last and the event was well attended by the lady past captains, but there was a shortage of men past captains. As a result, some of the ladies played for the men’s team in the annual matchplay event (though off the red tees) over the 9 hole event. It was an unusual result, with the men’s team winning for the first time in many years. The Past Captains are pictured prior to their dinner and the odd libation.

Alan Naisbitt RIP

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Alan Naisbitt who was a proud Parklands veteran. Alan died peacefully on the 23rd August 2018. Alan was a long-serving member of the Club and was Chairman of the Vets Section for many years. He became recognisable being regularly seen on his green, individual golf buggy either on the course or loading and unloading it in the carpark. More recently he was a regular attendee for Sunday lunches at the Club.

Alan’s funeral is Friday 7th September at Whitley Bay crematorium at 11.15am  More details to follow.

The Junior Team March On

A message from Bryan Malone …. ” We took our juniors to Moor Allerton Golf Club today in the quarter-final of the region finals. The format was stroke play, talking 1 best gross and 4 best nett scores and if need be, a 5th nett score would count. The course played long and tough, but all the team put in a great performance and we won the quarter-final by 1 shot, making me very proud. We now play in semifinals at Abbeydale on Sunday 7th Oct in the region final. So well done Ben Jones, Kane Mason, Harrison Sewell, Josh Barrass, Finn Bell and Maz Shanshol.”
